I got the special of tilapia with crab which was very tasty. Lots of juicy lump crab meat and butter sauce. Came with a vegetable, potatoe, bread, breadsticks and salad bar, I couldn't finish it all. A bit pricey but average for upscale seafood and...More

Driving on Interstate 476 I used my Garmin GPS to find a sea food restaurant not too much a drive from the highway. I settled on Henry's Salt of the Sea...now called Henry's Fine Dining! Atmosphere is earthy. Lighting a bit dark. A nice bar,...More

Henry's is a real gem in the Allentown area. Nothing special about the decor, but the service and food are outstanding. This restaurant is a little pricey for the area, but worth every penny!

This is a very small restaurant, so you will need to make a reservation before coming. When you first walk in, it is very unusual in the fact that the cooks are behind the counter preparing the food...just kind of an "old school" set up,...More

This is the absolutely best seafood in Allentown. But the restaurant is small, so be sure to call for a reservation before coming.

Henry's is an "old school" seafood house that hasn't changed much over the years. We dine here frequently and enjoy every visit. Aside from a quality meal, I enjoy the unique personality offered by Henry's and their full time veteran staff. Reservations are recommended because...More

Will need to find a parking spot on the street. Best place is one block west of the restaurant off of 20th street. Parking can provide a minor challenge.
